I have the 2016 Optima SXL with the fancy headlight that swivel and all. Recently the passenger side bulb went out so I naturally right it's just the bulb that's gone bad, since the DRL and indicators and all work perfectly fine, and bought new ones for replacement. Turns out they didn't work and after making sure the fuses are good, I had the car checked up at a Kia dealer who said the HID ballast needs to be replaced. They quoted me for $959 before taxes :eek:

I saw a couple of used and some new OEM ballasts online for much much cheaper but couldn't find instructions on how to replace it. The dealer said the bumper needs to come off so the labor charges are pretty high. Any idea on how to fix this ?

Would a whole headlight replacement be cheaper ?
